It appears as though Nathan Peterman will return to the Buffalo Bills lineup, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. 

Schefter reported on Tuesday that veteran quarterback Derek Anderson suffered a concussion against the New England Patriots on Monday, which means that Peterman would be the only healthy option, at the moment, for the Bills against the Chicago Bears on Sunday. 

Bills head coach Sean McDermott confirmed that Anderson is in the concussion protocol, along with rookie linebacker Tremaine Edmunds, but said that they will take things day-to-day with the 35-year-old quarterback.

Peterman started the first game of the season for the Bills, but went just 5-of-18 for 24 yards in just over two quarters of action. The team then turned to rookie Josh Allen to start immediately after the Week 1 loss to the Baltimore Ravens. Peterman did return to action in Buffalo's Week 6 game against the Houston Texans where he threw a pick-six with less than two minutes to play in a tied football game.

However, Peterman does have the last touchdown pass thrown by a Bills quarterback to Zay Jones in the fourth quarter of the Texans game. 

McDermott has already ruled Allen out of Sunday's game and still considers him week-to-week with his sprained elbow.
